, let me get to you react to what mark o'mara, the defense attorney for george zimmerman posted a little while ago, while juror b-29 is a model juror. "people may disagree with self-defense laws but a juror's job is not to decide what a law should be, her job is to apply the facts presented at trial to the laws they are instructed about. this is the eence of what we seek in a juror, the at to use one as common sense, apply the law to the facts, agree not to be swayed by sympathy or emotion, no matter how loudly it's argued by the prosecutors and decide a lawful and fair verdict." do you agree that juror b-29 was a, quote, model juror? >> well, i don't know if she was a model juror or not. i certainly think that she approached the process in good faith. i don't think there's any reason to doubt that she did that. but i think jeffrey makes a good point. what is really clear when we hear this juror speak is that she really misunderstood the law. she did not appropriately apply the law to the facts because she didn't understand it. and the reason why she didn't understand it could be because

the secrets with the enemy. the defense claimed manning first set out to reveal abuses by the u.s. military in iraq. in a pretrial statement to the court, manning admitted he leaked this classified video of an apache helicopter attack in iraq that killed a number of insurgents and two innocent civilians and said he was troubled by the american crew joking about the killings. >> the most alarming aspect of the video to me, however, was seemingly delightful bloodlust that they appeared to have. for me, this seems similar to a child torturing ants with magnifying glasses." >> reporter: wikileaks owner julian assange says their owners will fight the conviction on the charges. >> it's a serious abuse, and it will mean the end of national security journalism in the united states as we know it. >> reporter: and legal experts predict manning's convictions will have a chilling effect on future leakers. >> the government is very, very serious about protecting the status of classified information, and people who disseminate it are playing with fire. >> all right. >> that was nbc's jim miklaszewski rep

-- you know. and, you know, there was an honest to god defense -- difference of opinion between the two sides. you had to reconcile who was going to be right and whoches going to be wrong. at the same time you had independent pollsters who had had some screening questioning. questions designed to ascertain who is and who isn't likely to vote. for example, historically people how much interest do you have in the upcoming election. historically that's been a pretty good question to determine who isn't and is likely to vote. apparently in 2012, it didn't work. a lot of the traditional questions that had usually worked didn't work in 2012. and so you sort of had the fill philosophical difference what the electorate was. it was going -- you had legitimate people that didn't have a thumb on the scale in any dprix direction that were using traditionally reliability yardsticks that weren't right. and so you had some result that were, you know, all over the map. and we're now beginning to see a lot more sort of nontraditional polling. both the obama and the romney campaigns. yes, they were doing

responsive and know the way we defend our country, the way that we have enough money for national defense is by being frugal and not by saying give me, give me, give me all the time. >> i think you ratcheted up for lib bear generals. specifically, what i think he was referring to is your criticism of the nsa. i support the patriot act but who wrote that bill did not include what happened with the nsa. there's a distinction, is there not? >> you're absolutely right. we fought the american revolution due to the fact that we didn't want a warrant to apply to millions of people. the fourth amendment says it has to be a specific person, a place, and you have to name the items and you have to go to a judge and say there's probable cause. and here's the thing, i'm all for getting terrorists. i'm all for -- if i were the judge, absolutely, say yes. get the records. i'm first spying on terrorists. i'm not for spying on every american. and so people like the governor who are, i guess, flippant about privacy, flippant about the fourth amendment and flippant about the rights, they are laying their li

? he wants to be this great champion of national defense. what does he want to do? shut down military bases in kentucky? what this debate really is about is that in order to have enough money for national defense -- which i think is a priority for the government -- you have to be willing to cut spending in other places. >>steve: who's right on this? and is this debate good for the republican party? let's talk to our republican strategist brad todd. good morning. what did you make of that give-and-take? you're the king of bacon. no, you're the king of bacon! >> i halfway expect at any moment we're going to hear more schoolyard talk than i hear from a three and four-year-old at a preschool. it's did not, did too. i think in the end it is a good debate for the republican party to have in the open. it would be worse for it to fester in the back room. >>steve: it started a couple of days ago where chris christie who apparently is okay with an n.s.a. spying program talked a little bit about how there is this strain of libertarianism going through both parties right now making big headlines.

money be left over for national defense. >> people have stopped being polite and started getting real in the republican party. that was senator rand paul, tea party hero of kentucky, and likely presidential candidate, going hard at the gop's neocon wing and throwing in a jab on disaster relief for good measure. paul was responding primarily to comments made by new jersey governor chris christie seen by many as one of paul's chief potential rivals for the 2016 republican nomination. chris christie criticized the party's libertarian shift on matters of national security at a recent panel discussion in colorado. >> this strain of libertarianism that's going through both parties right now and making big headlines, i think, is a very dangerous thought. >> christie took that shot in the wake of the house's vote to defund nsa bulk collection of phone records which failed by a narrow margin. christie's attempt to stamp out a growing fire of skepticism among the republican base toward everything from mass surveillance to foreign wars. a base that appears to be moving in a decidedly rand paulia
